[Vorbis] high bitrate quality?

I used vorbis several years ago because of its freeness and VBR, but
after playing ha.org and getting an mp3-capable discman, I switched to
APS and API mp3 encoding.
Now, I am liking musepack a lot, but the flexibility is more "there" for
the vorbis format, including players, tagging comments (lyrics in the
comments - killer idea!), etc....
However, I am a bit worried about everything I see on
testing/tuning/optimizing for higher bitrate encoding. I am wanting to
do lossy archiving at a q7 level, and my music tastes range all over the
place but get as dynamic as hard-techno-industrial stuff. Will vorbis
let me down with music like this at a 220-300 kbps level?
Sorry if this has been beat to death elsewhere - I searched on
hydrogenaudio and googled a bit and everything points to vorbis being
optimized for lower ranges than what I am looking at.
